Mark Chapman’s winning stroke against Pakistan

Mark Chapman's striking performance against team Pakistan and levelling the match between the groups was jaw-dropping. He made a strong comeback in the ODI with all the eyebrows raised in the bleachers.

New Zealand appeared to be in trouble at 73-4 and chasing 194 in the tenth over. Mark Chapman and Jimmy Neesham swiftly won the fifth and final T20, scoring an unbeaten 121 runs in 9.3 overs. This was one of the strongest performances of the duo.

When the Black Caps made 194-4 in response to Pakistan's 193-5, supported by opener Mohammad Rizwan's unbeaten 98 off 62 balls, they accomplished the second-highest chase against Pakistan.

Chapman set a career-high with 104 runs off of 57 balls. For his second-highest T20 total, Neesham struck 45 not out from 25. In Lahore, New Zealand lost the first two games before returning to draw the series at 2-2. On Friday, the fourth game was cancelled.

Mark Chapman scored 290 runs in five games against a fully loaded Pakistan bowling attack and was the series' standout performer. In the first game, he got dismissed only once. The New Zealand team performed remarkably despite losing eight frontline players who chose to participate in the Indian Premier League.

Mark Chapman, raised by a Kiwi father and a Chinese mother and was born in Hong Kong, has made significant progress in recent years, but he hasn't yet cemented a spot in the New Zealand limited-overs lineup. Chapman's potential was evident from a young age, but now that he is 27 and has played for New Zealand, he plans to work on becoming an all-around batter. 

Despite attaining a massive milestone in his debut game, Chapman, who began his cricket career in Hong Kong and has yet to establish himself on the international circuit, was never really able to make a name for himself. Then, the game-changing moment arrived when he proved his mettle against Pakistan in the ODI and became a star player for New Zealand.
